This series (which is very helpfully identified on the cover of the book along with the book title itself) appears to be a female-centric take on some historical events - specifically a slice of life in the difficult times of early 17th century.

Historical fiction has gained quite a bit of following in the past several decades, and one of the ways to keep the genre fresh and interesting is by being creative with the characters who offer their points of view. Most historical documents we have from that time period are not concerned with young women and their day-to-day lives - so this series has the potential to discover an entirely new way of thinking about the Mayflower time period and the people who inhabited that world. Hopefully the research that has gone into this series will make it a delight.
